Ray,  What drivers are required just for hardware encoding?  I am trying
to get a Marvel G200TV setup and I cannot seem to get the full driver
(mgavideo) working.  My setup includes an onboard TV-Out which I am
pleased with so I just want to use the G200 for capture, but from what I
have read the card is not being initilized correctly.  I have tried
video=matrox:init but I cannot seem to get the drivers loaded correctly,
do you have any words of wisdom?
